We stayed at this hotel in August. The room was very well equipped with a fridge and stove and had a separate sitting area. The location is very convenient to the public transportation which made touring the downtown much easier - no worries about parking!

There is nothing remarkable about this place. Nothing great, but nothing terrible. The included breakfast is decent, but again, nothing to write home about. I don't think it is close to downtown, at least by foot. It isn't on the beaten track for cabs. It is a little hard to find if you are unfamiliar with the area. Even a... More

Dear Janegf, Thank you for taking time to complete a review. Based on your comments, it sounds like you may have stayed at a different hotel. Our hotel does not have kitchens. Were you by chance staying at one of our sister hotels? Our hotel is a landmark in Portland that has been here for 30 years, located on the... More

Overall, we were pleased with our stay at this Residence Inn. The staff is friendly, the room is comfortable (though a bit small for a family of four- we had a king suite and used the pull out sofa and a rollaway), the breakfast (especially the coffee!) is good and the location is a 30+ minute walk along the river...

Everything about this hotel is good - the size of the rooms, cleanliness, staff, food etc. Lobby staff are particularly helpful and knowledgeable. Location of the hotel is the only drawback, though the streetcar stop is outside the door and journey time to Pioneer Square is 15 - 20 minutes

First, a tip for those coming in cars off Highway 5 going south. After crossing the river, you need to stay in the left lane (counterintuitive) on Hwy. 405 so that you can get off at 4th and double back. Our check-in went smoothly and the receptionist was sure to tell me that parking the car was $24/day (Ouch! Stadium... More

This hotel is in a nice location on the river, close to the OHSU campus & OMSI museum. It's also right across the street from a MAX station which is super convenient. The hotel is very nice.

I have travelled all over the world and have never received so little for so much money. I was so disappointed in my stay at this place.
